Brianna Wu stands strongly for paid parental leave. All parents deserve to enjoy the birth of their child, knowing they can return to work without setbacks or prejudice in their career. It’s not just a matter of being fair to the parents, this vital period affects a child’s development for life.
Our society is raising children who are not well connected emotionally and psychosocially with their parents. Rather than blame individuals, we need to recognize that many parents have little to no support. These problems include our rigged economy, the prison-industrial complex and a corporate America that doesn't recognize work-life balance.
Paid parental leave will give American parents the ability to ensure a solid emotional bond with their children. This is very important to Brianna Wu, and she will fight for your right to raise your children without fear of being fired.
